Judges Comments

  • There’s more to this image than the obvious humor of the scene. Notice how the crop itself adds a necessary tension to the moment. You can almost feel the discomfort of trying to tie a bow while strapped to an infant. The falling sash at the back of the dress and the arms of the woman act as leading lines to the focal point of the image. This is a good example of those times where the “whispering” moment finds its booming voice through excellent photography.
